September 19, 2021 Worship Service 




As we move toward growth in spirituality, in numbers, and in faithfulness, we are aware that COVID19 is still a serious threat in our community and the best practice is for everyone, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, to wear a mask at worship and other events. We encourage you to bring your favorite mask or we will be happy to provide one for you as we welcome you to worship.


We now have childcare for the 9:00 and 11:00 services. Miss Madison will be available to take care of your little ones while you attend church.
